The anti-intellectual Americans etc...

" eggheads" -- Ah, you know you are reading an article by an American when you see this term as it is totally anti-intellectual.

The English are intelligent e.g. Alan Turing, Charles Babbage, Ada Byron Lovelace etc.. etc...

The French are intellectual e.g. Blaise Pascal etc...

Americans are fat , ignorant and lazy hence terms like egghead. How is tossing around the term 'eggheads' working out for Americans while they are being anally raped (hacked ) by Russia , China and South America ?

Uncle Sam fingers two Chinese men for hacking tech, aerospace, defense biz on behalf of Beijing

Because rockstar coders are in the minority and are expensive and geniuses are hard to work with. I hear working with Theo De Raadt is like trying to cuddle up to a prickly cactus at best ! I dunno, maybe in the future AI with scan all source code , via a paradigm like Diomidis Spinellis laid down, and get rid of software problems or maybe the future is more like the programming language cyclone etc.. etc.. ?!

Re: MSPs are cheap for a reason

Exactly, since Americans are ignorant, fat and lazy and think science and technology is for 'nerds' and since their international PISA scores are lackluster they can't compete internationally in the modern age hence they outsource it ! The future happens but it largely does not happen within the US at least not at first, anymore !

College kids and Indians -- pretty stupid etc...

Amazon using college kids instead of professionals and the American IT industry outsourcing stuff to Indians -- all pretty stupid stuff. But what ? Ulster Scots rebelled against the British empire and the porrage monkey Scot invented Capitalism to take the place of Aristocracy. The peasants and the merchant classes are on top and the Aristocrats are on bottom : The Scots and the French screwing up the world as usual and the what are we English expected to clean up their mess again (e.g. Hitler waltzing into France etc...?).

Alan Turing -- w00t AI -etc.. -- oops American idiots trying to combine IoT with AI but wait -- what ?-- what are all those telnet ports on the IoT devices instead of SSH doing there ? Doh !
